The Job Role:

Due to rapid expansion, our client is looking for a Workshop Assistant to join their team. 

This is a hands-on role, and would be perfect for a candidate who has experience of hazardous chemical handling, operating machinery, cleaning of machinery and a background in STEM. Our client is looking for a high-tech enthusiast who has a personal interest in high tech, machinery or chemicals.

Duties will include the following;

  • Conducting tests on machinery
  • Recording data from machinery
  • Communicating outcomes of tests to the team
  • Cleaning machinery
  • Lifting machinery
  • General cleaning and up keep of the workshop

The ideal candidate for this role will have experience of the following;

  • Working in a semi industrious working environment
  • Experience using hand tools
  • Working to strict health and safety protocol
  • Working in a laboratory environment (candidates who have experience as a lab technician will be at an advantage but this is not an essential requirement)

This role is well suited to candidates who have experience working within a warehouse or workshop, are used to lifting and operating heavy machinery and are not looking for a role in front of a PC. 

Full training will be provided on all machinery and laboratory equipment.
